states. he is the first president since andrew jackson to be reelected to have a smaller share of the vote than when he won. at this point, he is tied with george w. bush for the narrowest margin of victory ever for is successfully reelected president. we are a very divided country. demography gives democrats an opportunity to build a majority coalition. they have won the popular vote five out of six presidential elections. it is a real challenge in executing the opportunity that the democratic -- demographic change provides. the campaign showed the weakness of both sides been the republicans are unable to win 20% of minorities. both parties are looking at structural challenges in who they speak to them back the chance that obama had to build a robust coalition was not realised, but demography still gives democrats an edge on the presidential level. >> i've focused very heavily on young voters. it has been my personal crusade to figure out how the right can win more young voters back onto our site. in 2008, it was an historic election. barack obama won young voters by 34 points
diverse nation. host: let's go to jackson, mississippi, on the democratic line. caller: good morning. i'm very glad i got through. i'm very interested in what you are talking about. i am just elated that this gentleman is on and speaking of the hispanic people. i think they are doing a great job. they come here to work. their values are no different than american values. they want family. they want to take care of their kids. they want their kids educated. they want their children to be able to work in this society just like everybody in america. everybody in america huckster remember there -- america house to remember their ancestors came here for the same reasons -- everybody in america has to remember that their ancestors came here for the same reasons. the gentleman that was on before that was talking about we need to learn our values -- we have not learned our own values yet. host: max sevilla? guest: i take great pride in the fact we are upright -- a nation of immigrants. we are a melting pot. through our diversity, we have a new and interesting for festive -- an interesting persp
jesse jackson jr. reelected. our next call comes from nashville, tennessee. this is the jacob. caller: thank you for receiving my call. i voted for jill stein. i feel both parties are very short sighted as far as the future of the planet. it is proven by the flooding and so forth. if we do not get into sustainable thinking, then all of this is basically a moot question. also, at each individual has their own responsibility to change their lifestyle so that they do not get sick. it is a two edged sword. corporations will always trump the environment for short-term gains. for example, the promotion of soft drinks. all of these things are killing us, and it is an economic factor. therefore, i am relieved that obama got in, the lesser of two evils thing, but i definitely feel like we are sure-sided. host: have you looked on line to total votell stein's take was? caller: i have not looked. i am sure it is less than 1%. the thing about third parties it is they can have an influence, and if each of us raises consciousness, that could change things. host: as we mentioned earlier, there is a c
since and jackson to be reelected with fewer votes than he got the first time. he will win with low 300 electoral votes. that is hardly a landslide. it is his mandate? -- what is te?is manda he did say, "elect me because that other guy is really scummy." he is overseeing a polarized electorate. we are a very clean the electorate. in walks president obama who now has to -- now has a second chance to fill the promises of his first election, which were to forge a consensus across the aisle to solve the big problems in this country. the election was too much about the small things. >> a stark reminder of the present cost challenge going forward. he won independence in 2008 but he lost them last night. he got out democrats. the center of this country preferred romney. >> the center of the country is tired of the status quo and voted for the status quo. we have the same ruling structure. >> mitt romney did not present a tempting alternative, as beth put it in one of her stories. one place that will start is the republican primaries. that was an interesting process this year with interesting p
. -- i want to point out this story from cbs news. "jesse jackson jr. has not yet pleaded guilty to the legend misuse of campaign funds, but cbs chicago reports that the congressman's lawyer and criminal defense attorney is negotiating with several governments a plea deal that will likely be reached by the end of the year. now i want to go to cathy, from st. petersburg, florida, on the subject of the resignation of general petraeus. cathy is on the democratic line this morning. caller: i cannot believe his react -- cannot believe this reaction. he is not just a regular soldier having a fling, he is the head of the cia. this woman, broadwell, ok, she is a harvard graduate, west point graduate. he was very impressed with her, sleeping with her, god knows what he told her. she sent his e-mail, his click to another woman. ok, she has the judgment and is repulse of now. does this not make you wonder, what the heck? host: what do you think this does to the generals legacy after his work in afghanistan and iraq? did we lose you? all right, we will go to lisa, then, from arizona, on the
or or jessekson -- the eveevent jackson, that is the way that you grow. you could evolve into a james mcgrath or michelle. i'm ambivalent about it. the only problem i have with it is to maintain good standards. just be honest with what you're doing. make sure that you get the right name, make sure that you get the information right behind it. don't say, will you stand over this? if it is actuality and a real news event. i see a lot of young people and older folks that perhaps don't quite understand that. perhaps they will get a mentor and they will learn from those things. the only real thing that sticks in my craw, you have to blame a lot of this kind of scuffling to cover something to the deputy commissioner for public information. the issue to many credentials. you have this excessive coverage of an event and it was difficult for legacy media to do that because it was very difficult. it made it a lot harder. perhaps the difficulties will render a whole new kind of approach to composition. >> it is just too easy. want a bellyache too much because i don't think people really want to -- >> [t
